Hangul Smart Domain Organization, which is the group that provides URL addresses in the Korean language of hangul, held an online survey from May 3-11th. The subject: who the most popular girl idol group is.
The results from the 23,274 people who participated were very clear.
Girls' Generation garnered 48.22% of the votes as number one, followed by Kara with 30.17%. Wonder Girls was significantly behind at third place with 11.09%. Trailing behind even further were the rest of the groups with insignificant counts: 4minute had 3.82%, Secret with 2.01%, T-ara with 1.92%, Sistar having won 0.84%, miss A with 0.69%, 2NE1 with 0.66%, and After School last with 0.53%.
Being the top three winners, Girls' Generation, Kara, and the Wonder Girls -- along with their respective fan clubs -- will receive their very own Korean, or hangul, smart domain address. This would make them the first in the world to have hangul URLs (i.e. '소녀시대.홈', '카라.홈' '원더걸스.홈', '소녀시대.팬', '카라.팬', '원더걸스.팬').
A similar poll will be held for boy idol groups next!
